LAHORE - A division bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) giving benefit of doubts to two murder accused Saturday set aside death conviction of one and life term of the other and ordered the authorities to discharge the murder charges and release them if no other case is standing against them. The bench headed by Justice Manzoor Ahmad Malik held that, We are of the considered view that prosecution has miserably failed to prove its case against the appellants. The ocular account is not in line with the medical evidence while it is duty of prosecution to prove its case beyond any shadow of doubt and if any doubt arises from the circumstances of the case its benefit has to got to the accused. It held, In our view the prosecution case is full of doubts and the appellants are entitled to the benefit of the same not as a matter of grace but as a matter of right. Therefore, by extending them benefit of doubt, we allow the appeal; the convictions and sentences recorded by the trail court are set aside. They are acquitted of the charges levelled against them. They be released forthwith if not required to be detained in any other case. The bench issued this order while allowing the appeal of three accused of killing a man. A trial court of Faisalabad on March 29, 2005 awarded death sentence to Muhammad Ishfaq and a fine of Rs100,000 and awarded life imprisonment to accused Abdul Rehman and Abdul Rasheed.
